Well, I was going to hold off getting the new Final Fantasy Theaterhythm and see if it came it on iOS,  but the stellar reviews have convinced me to grab it now. 

It's excellent.  Even after 60+ hours with the original, I still can't stop playing Curtain Call.

3  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / SteamWorld Heist on: September 16, 2014, 10:14:01 PM
The follow-up to SteamWorld Dig has been announced, but it's not a sequel.  SteamWorld Heist looks like it will have the same art style and be set in the universe, but it will be a turn-based strategy game.  The game is due out spring 2015 for 3DS, Wii U, PC/Mac/Linux, PS4/Vita and Xbox One.

Its a space game; a game about space exploration where you play a rogue steam-driven captain of a ship, whos basically just trying to survive from day to day by raiding other ships

Presently I'm in the middle of Parks and Recreation.  I don't recall why I never got into it before, but I am just totally in love with the show now.  I mainly wanted to see Chris Pratt, but really the entire cast is fantastic and just grows on me more and more.  And I admit I am absolutely obsessed with Chris Pratt, who am I kidding?  I think chubby/dumb Chris Pratt is even more appealing than handsome/buff/action Chris Pratt, it's insane that it's the same guy.

What season are you on?  I consider season 4 to be the greatest single season in sitcom history, so if you haven't watched it yet, you're in for a treat.  Unfortunately, it goes downhill after that, but season 4 alone would have sealed its place on the list of greatest sitcoms ever.

Crazy week for me - Theatrhythm FF CC and Fairy Fencer F on Tuesday, Elminage Gothic and Endless Legend on Steam on Thursday.  Wasteland 2 is an eventual buy too.

This will probably never get finished and it takes up one of my five bounty spots.  

I think you can cancel bounties in the inventory screen.

I was thinking more along the lines of cash, gems, and real estate, but I guess those things will have to do slywink

I have three demo download codes.  If anyone wants one, I'm prepared to accept your various gifts and offerings slywink
9  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Elminage Gothic on: September 13, 2014, 01:52:39 AM
Elminage Gothic, a dungeon crawler inspired by the early Wizardry games, is available for preorder from Steam for $7.99.  The game was originally released in Japan on the PSP, but this is the first US release.  I've never played any of the Elminage games, but I've heard good things about them, so I went ahead and preordered.

I was thinking that maybe I simply cannot play FPS, but then I remembered the one time I was successful - that was Hellgate London.  I had no trouble in that game, so what I'm saying is it's not 100% me lol.

Don't charge in to groups of enemies and run away when your health gets low.  At least early on, enemies won't chase you.  There's plenty of cover, so just take out some enemies, run and hide and recharge, then head back in.  Also, melee attacks are very powerful.  They'll take out most enemies in one hit and stagger the rest so you can finish them off with a shotgun blast.

12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Does everyone need to do a Dynasty Warriors clone? on: September 05, 2014, 08:22:22 AM
My guess is that Omega Force, the developer of the Dynasty Warriors series, approached Nintendo and Square Enix about collaborating on these games.  Given that they're probably fairly easy to make, easy to localize, and have built in fan-bases, I can see why they'd be attractive to publishers.  Also, I'm sure Square Enix wants to do everything it can to increase the paltry PS4 player base in Japan before FFXV comes out.  As much as I'd love to see a real DQ sequel on the PS4, busting up a bunch of the series' classic enemies with its classic heroes sounds like a lot of fun too.

20  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Playstation Plus - Now with lots more free games! on: August 27, 2014, 09:22:36 PM
I'm not usually one to complain about PS+, but this is easily the worst month since the launch of the instant games collection.  Only one retail game (and it's two years old), a game most people won't even be able to play (Sportsfriends), a port of a game most people probably already have (Joe Danger) and two decent-looking indie games.  Velocity 2X looks good, but apart from that, it's a wash.
21  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1/Ps3/Ps4] Dragon Age: Inquisition on: August 26, 2014, 10:22:25 PM
The game's multiplayer mode has been revealed - FAQ here.  It kind of sounds like a mix of ME3's multiplayer and something along the lines of Diablo 3's rift system.  Thankfully, the SP and MP modes are completely separate this time and won't have any effect on each other.

What difficulty is everyone playing the campaign?  I'm about halfway through Act 1 with my Demon Hunter, and even Master isn't very difficult.

Maybe - Azure Striker Gunvolt for 3DS, depending on reviews
Someday - Infamous : First Light

I'm loving the new streak bonuses, such as kill streaks, destruction streaks, etc.  They really change how you play the game, especially the kill streaks and nephalem glory.  Also, I think I just sent my first nemesis to someone.  After I got killed, a red portal opened up and something went through it.
26  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: August 19, 2014, 02:48:27 AM
4 more hours drool  I'm Corvelay on PSN if anyone wants to add me.  I probably won't do much multiplayer, but the nemesis system sounds cool.

Diablo 3 UEE and Counterspy for PS4 and Sword Art Online : Hollow Fragment for Vita.  I'm kind of glad I haven't finished Tales of Xillia yet, or I'd be getting ToX 2 as well.

Yeah, even the double dip decision is killing me. Spend $60 on something I've already sunk 50-60 hours into, or just spend $40 on Divinity:Original Sin which will probably offer about as much gameplay for $20 less. However, just knowing my play style, my chances of actually finishing Diablo 3 again are far greater than finishing D:OS.

If it makes you feel any better, I spent $60 on the original PC version and put about 110 hours into it.  I then paid $60 for the PS3 version and put another 70 or so hours into it, and I'm still really looking forward to getting UEE for PS4 on Tuesday.
29  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo III --Impressions start on page 36 -- on: August 17, 2014, 08:45:01 PM
Here's one nice change I saw mentioned in a video - environmental hazards (chandeliers, falling rocks, etc.) now do more than a few hit points of damage.  Any standard enemy is killed instantly if hit by a hazard, and elite/champion enemies are damaged and stunned.  I always used the hazards in D3, but only because they looked cool - it's nice that they'll actually do something now.

I put some time into Sacred 3 (2 main missions and 2 side missions) and here are my impressions.  The game is definitely nothing like the first two games.  Oddly enough, the game Sacred 3 reminds me most of is Skylanders.  It's got a similar battle system, skill upgrade trees, gold drops to spend on upgrades, and a rather corny sense of humor.  It's also fun in the same way that Skylanders is.  It's got a little more depth than I first thought.  Although you can only have two skills active at a time, there are actually seven total to choose from, and everything from weapons to skills to even blocking and dodging have branching skill trees of upgrades.  Combat has a great feel to it, and there's some variety, with some enemies having shields that need to be taken down, some enemies that you can pick up and throw, disarmable traps on the battlefield, etc.

I wouldn't encourage anyone to rush out and buy the game, but once it comes down in price (which probably won't take long), I'd recommend it.  It's hard not to imagine what could have been if they had combined this battle system with the huge open world and skill system of Sacred 2, but for what Sacred 3 is, I'm enjoying it.

Quote from: Caine on August 07, 2014, 08:34:24 PM

That was on purpose as they usually make a point of with these releases.  For some reason, there is no mention of any improvements to Sleeping Dogs though. 

According to the Amazon listing, the game has been "rebuilt specifically for next-gen consoles".  The PS4/XBO definitive version of Tomb Raider had a few things the PC version didn't, such as a new facial animation system and better hair animations.

I knew it was an action game, which didn't bother me, but it seems like reviews on Steam are universally bad, so I'll probably wait for a sale.  It doesn't sound too different from Gauntlet, so I'm still a little tempted, just wish it were on one of the next gen consoles.

I wouldn't put much stock in the reviews.  Most people can't get over the fact that this game isn't like Sacred 2, and even if it were the greatest hack-and-slash action game ever made, they'd still hate it.  Since Best Buy cancelled my Destiny Limited Edition preorder and gave me $50 gift card in compensation and the game is only $30 (after my Gamers Club discount and the $10 gift card that comes with the game) I decided to buy it.  I'll post some impressions once I've played some.

38  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3/360] Assassin's Creed: Rogue on: August 05, 2014, 07:18:04 PM
The next Game Informer will have more information.

Rogue places fans in the shoes of a Templar, controlling former Assassin-turned-Templar Shay Patrick Cormac. Employing the popular naval gameplay from Black Flag, you navigate a ship across the frigid North Atlantic. Other locales you visit include the Appalachian River Valley and a reimagined New York. Shay is an assassin hunter who has to be even more clever to outsmart his sneaky foes. This entry takes place during the Seven Years' War, filling in the gap between Black Flag and Assassin's Creed III. We won't spoil much, but it has a crucial link to the Kenway saga. Our exclusive feature gives more insight into Shay, details how the cold waters are different from Black Flag's Caribbean setting, and discusses the tools Shay has at his disposal for outsmarting assassins. The Seven Years' War is part of what lead to France's financial troubles, and it's hinted that Shay has even deeper ties to Unity.

I'll be getting Road Not Taken for PS4 and Metrico for Vita as part of PS+.  Also, the early access version of Lords of Xulima is out on Steam this week, so I'll be getting that since I backed the kickstarter.
40  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Destiny -Bungie's new game with Activision on: August 03, 2014, 09:04:38 PM
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this is how the content breaks down - There are four main types of content -

Campaign - single or co-op story mode with cutscenes.  instanced, so you don't see other players unless they're in your party.  Missions are replayable, but people are speculating the campaign will probably be about the same length as the Halo campaigns.  I think the whole campaign is supposed to be playable solo, but we won't know for sure until the game is out.

Crucible - 6 multiplayer game modes, like deathmatch, capture the flag, control points, etc. 1-6 player teams

Free roam - single or co-op.  wander around open areas taking on enemies and random events.  You can play by yourself, but other players will be visible.

End-game/other - strikes, raids, daily events.  strikes and raids require groups, but I'm not sure about the daily events
